Cracking Sands Racing is a free arcade racing game, developed by Polarbit, in which you have to compete against other players in crazy tracks, sabotaging your opponents with several items. The title’s plot is very simplistic: death races are the main way to get elevated into a better social status in a tribal society. This is but an excuse to deliver the action-racing genre to your Internet browser with all kind of weapons, shortcuts, and adrenaline shots.
The HUD (head-up display) of this App shows you information about items you carry, the actions available, and data about the race status. The different actions can be performed by tapping on the icons that can be found in the screen or using the “wasd” and space keys for each one. In this way you can shoot at your rivals with the default machine gun, jump over obstacles, or have a speed boost with your nitro. Each one of these actions requires energy that you can obtain by collecting the shining items placed on the race track.
The graphics of this game are pretty good, as they were designed to be played on an Internet browser, but that's apparent from the heavy file you have to download. The action is smooth, and we couldn't find any problem of FPS drop with an average computer. The character’s model is simplistic, with a super-deformed style, with special effort put into the vehicles with good light effects. Race tracks are pretty detailed too, with different settings like snowy mountains, urban tracks, and a lava volcano.
Modes to play
Cracking Sands Racing features six different game modes that are unlockable once you pass different cups of the campaign section. Among these App modes, you can find Time Trial, for practicing on the different tracks; Race, for competing against other NPC players; or Elimination, which is based completely on the action part of the title. Each mode comes with numerous stages without any further download.
Cracking Sands Racing comes with its online shop for getting new elements that can help you in your races. In this garage, you can purchase new weapons like a freeze gun, missiles, or even a powerful railgun. The vehicle can be upgraded in different sections like acceleration, control or top speed, or you can even get a whole new car with a different style. The last part of this garage is the customization of your character. You can get new bodies, hats, and additional elements with the coins you earn during your races.
